Wedding Band: A Love/Hate Story In Black and White

Written by Alice Childress
Directed by Gregg T. Daniel

Set in the South against the backdrop of World War I, a Negro woman and Caucasian man celebrate ten years together: a relationship that expressly violates America’s “miscegenation” laws. As they struggle to live a normal life amidst fear of discovery and of being fined, imprisoned, or lynched, the limits of love, tolerance, and humanity are tested in this unflinching work.
